Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 293 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good! I got this disposal to replace our 13 year old Badger 5 and it was a direct replacement. Since I replaced a Badger with another Badger the flange did not need to be replaced. All in all it took me about 30 minutes to change it out, it was pretty simple. My setup doesn't have a p-trap coming off the disposal like they show in the directions so I didn't use the elbow that was included; it's just a straight pipe that goes into a tee at the sink drain. I've seen mixed reviews for this brand so we'll see how long it lasts, but so far it is doing its job. I did notice that it is much quieter that the older one and also is not quite as big, so that is always a plus! August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's a garbage disposal... When I bought my house 14 years ago, it had a garbage disposal and it lasted until last month. I bought this disposal, brought it home and pulled my old one out - same brand! Same size! Everything fit with little effort. I have good experience with my old one, and so far I am very happy with the new one. I think this disposal will prove to be as great as my previous one. This new one runs quiet enough for me - it is quieter than the one I replaced. I suppose the higher end models are quieter. I would say that this product is totally AWESOME - but - it is just a garbage disposal. "Everything is awesome..." (Lego movie) April 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase!!! The disposal was easy to install. The instructions were very clear. The product works better than I had imagined. Great price too. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Badger 500-1/2 Feed Garbage Disposal quieter and efficient. The Badger 500 Continuous Feed Disposal was suggested to me by a salesperson at The Home Depot as a replacement for the original disposal installed in my kitchen.. He was so right. I had no trouble (as a novice "Miss Fixit" handy person)! It's a great product, fficient and is quiet like I was told. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Garbage Disposal The Badger 500 was purchased to replace a older model that had rested through . This unit was very easy to install . All I had to do was swap out the electrical plug wires and snap the unit into place . All the plumbing lined right up for easy installation . This disposal is very quite and chews up whatever we put in it . September 30, 2014
